AVIATOR II

How do you improve on perfection? Originally built for the U.S. military, our flagship military-spec Aviator is modified to include a sweat bar for added comfort and a distinguished look.

Our flagship Aviator has been standard-issue to the U.S. military since 1982. With careful attention to detail, from unique bayonet temples designed to fit comfortably under headgear to stay-snug screws, it has set the standard for world-class quality. Battle tested and suitable for the most demanding situations (or just to lie on the beach), our Aviator is worn by U.S. military pilots, tastemakers, and those who demand the best.

  • Handcrafted in the USA in 200+ steps, using only the finest components
  • Military-issued: HGU4/P, MIL-S-25948
  • Signature bayonet temples designed to fit under a hat or flight helmet
  • Jewelry-quality finishes coated for durability and scratch resistance
  • Adjustable cushioned silicone nose pads
  • 100% UVA/UVB protection
  • Warrantied for life on solder joints
  • Includes a case, microfiber cleaning cloth, and maintenance kit

“Good enough for fighter pilots, good enough for us.”

PRECISION-BUILT TO MILITARY STANDARDS SINCE 1982

 

With a tireless work ethic and endless determination, our founders built Randolph into an elite eyewear manufacturer. In 1982, Randolph won a contract to produce the standard, uniform-issue military-spec aviator sunglasses for the U.S. Air Force, a contract we proudly hold to this day.

GUARANTEED FOR LIFE

 

Ever heard of a sunglass company guaranteeing its frames for life? Well, we do. Our frames are built to such high specifications that we stand by each pair for as long as you own them.

23K GOLD AND OTHER PREMIUM FINISHES

 

Jewelry-quality finishes aren’t just stylish. They’re also extremely tough—applied at up to 5 times the industry standard and electroplated for maximum durability and scratch-resistance.

SkyTec™ LENS TECHNOLOGY

The U.S. military demands the best. You should too.

 

Developed with military aviation in mind to safeguard a pilot’s most important asset—his vision.
Each lens is engineered to precise optical and durability standards, with 100% UVA/UVB protection.

WEATHERPROOF

Designed to withstand the damaging effects of weathering

SCRATCH RESISTANT

Scratch resistant coating for long lasting clarity and durability

DROP BALL TESTED

Tested for impact resistance by ¼-inch steel ball drop from three feet away

MADE IN AMERICA. COMMITTED TO AMERICAN JOBS

 

Throughout Randolph’s history, our family-owned New England factory has honored its commitment to American jobs and manufacturing—even as other sunglass companies began moving their operations offshore in the 1980s. We are proud to be the only remaining metal eyewear manufacturer in the USA.

HANDMADE AND DETAIL-DRIVEN

 

It takes craftsmen in our Randolph, Massachusetts factory over five weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses.
More than 200 steps go into making each and every frame—and most of the work is done by hand.

STAY-SNUG SCREWS


Our stainless steel screws have been specially-designed to have a flared tip that prevents them from coming out, ensuring a perfect fit for years of wear.

UNEQUALED STRENGTH


At Randolph, we even make our own solder flux (this is the machine that solders the glasses together). This, in combination with a 56% silver filler, provides unequaled joint strength and integrity.

SUPERIOR QUALITY


We scour the world for the best components, including metal alloys with tight molecular structure, to prevent rust and oxidation and satisfy our drive for superior quality.

COMFORT ENGINEERED


Nose pads self-adjust for fit and comfort, while smooth monoblock hinges mean no sharp corners to snag clothing. That’s a relief!

SIGNATURE TEMPLES

 

Our signature bayonet temples were designed to fit comfortably under a pilot’s headgear.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

All frames come with a case, microfiber cleaning cloth, maintenance tool kit (screw driver, extra nose pads, and screws) and Lifetime Warranty certificate.

Maintenance Tool Kit


Everything you need to maintain your glasses, including a sunglass-size screwdriver, screws, and extra nose pads

Protective Case


Leather pebble grain case with an inner pocket to hold your maintenance kit

Cleaning Cloth


Microfiber cloth to keep your glasses looking like new

    This is the sixth pair of sunglasses that I have purchased from you.
    These are the best sunglasses made.
    There is now a pair on the boat, in each car and one in our on the left in the country.
    My husband is mad for these glasses.
    In a world where quality has all but disappeared….it's a joy to deal with you.

  4. 4 out of 5 Nice Sunglasses

    So far I am very pleased with these sunglasses. I had an original pair years ago and these are essentially the same. They came with a very nice case and a cleaning cloth with a fighter jet silk-screen (nice touch). i'm very happy with these. One suggested small improvement would be to make the arms spring-loaded like so many of the newer sunglasses are.

    I originally ordered the Corsair in Antique Bronze and returned them since the color didn't match what I saw in the picture. Then I went to Fashion and Quality Optics in Philadelphia and had the Aviator 2 ordered in Gunmetal with Gray Polorized glass lens. While I wasn't satisfied with the color of the Corsair, they were an improvement over my previous sunglasses. The Aviator 2 however is a step up over the Corsair. The Gunmetal color matched with the Aviator 2 styling catches the eye without being flashy. They have an expensive look and feel with the glass lens and are comfortable to wear. These are the best sunglasses I ever had. Highly recommended.

  8. 5 out of 5 Love em!

    I ordered these after reading numerous reviews. They are exactly as described in those reviews – solidly constructed, great lenses that protect the eyes, and damn good looking. They are not cheap, but great things rarely are.

    Love em!

    Excellent build quality. Bought the II looking for a more reinforced skeleton and was not disappointed. Works perfect when flying glass aircraft.
